There was this one available for a while https://www.specializedconceptstore.co. ... d-edition/ , probably the closest to all black, if you shop around there might still be one or two. Might have to wait for the 2019 ones to come out as the 2018 ones seem to be sold out.

They bring out Red Hook specials in limited runs, you need to keep an eye on the Specialized website for them. Only thing that puts me off is it's £1300 for the frames but you can still find fully built up 2017 ones for less than that (stock colours then were anodised green or orange).

Another couple of red Hook Crit special editions:

This was actually available in the UK for a while:

Finally one of the actual Red Hook Crit special bikes (probably a bit much for most people!):

Clearly an alu aero crit bike isn't going to be to everyone's tastes, but I think they look quite good, a bit different to most others, and the standard builds are available for reasonable money. You couldn't get a decent carbon aero road bike for anything like that much. Apparently the aero performance is about the same as the original Venge.


That purple is lovely. :D


i want a road version of the bottom one - lovely.

the hideous paint jobs make them somehow more appealing.
